Global Rights programmes to be added in curriculumBy Zarghona Salehi Dec 17, 2011 - 18:54
KABUL (PAN): The Ministry of Higher Education planned to include programmes of Global Rights International Organization in curriculum for public universities, officials said on Saturday.
Global Rights is a human rights capacity-building organization working in partnership with local activities. In Afghanistan it started its operation in 2001 by providing different trainings to government staffs and university students of several provinces.
Working in partnership with local activists in Africa, Asia and Latin America, Global Rights had trained 1,400 students in state-run universities of Kabul, Kapisa, Nangarhar, Balkh and Nangarhar, since 2004.
Its programmes would be included in curriculum of the Islamic Studies and law faculties, deputy high education minister, Mohammad Osman Baburi, told a news conference in Kabul.
He said the practical programmes of Global Rights would help promote professionalism in universities.
The Law faculty head at Kabul University, Abdul Qarar Wasil, asked the Global Rights to provide practical trainings to professors.
Programme manager at Global Rights, Mohammad Ishaq Faizi, said the organization would technically support the Ministry of Higher Education. Most programmes of the Global Rights last four and a half months.
"It is very important for students to participate in practical programmes on university level," Asia Jamshidi, a student of Herat University, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
